Theatre REVIEW: Hamilton - ★★★★★

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s multi-award-winning cultural phenomenon Hamilton is touring the UK for the very first time in 2023/2024 and is coming to the Festival Theatre for a 9-week season from Wednesday 28 February 2024.

Hamilton is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway - the story of America then, as told by America now.

Hamilton has book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire and is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Alexander Hamilton.

Winner of 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, 7 Olivier Awards, the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2016 Grammy Award for BestMusical Theatre Album.



Festival Theatre, Edinburgh - until 27th April - part of UK Tour


Archie (11) & Maddie (10) - ★★★★★

"It was really spectacular and easier to follow the history because of the rapping. The music was great and mum was singing the songs for a few days after. The set was really simple and used well. There was lots of good dancing. Maddie liked Hamilton because he is in the ikea. Archie liked King George (maddie did too) because he was funny, slay and had the best song. Archie claims he knew all the history anyway."


Make sure you have booked in for the latest DRAMA CLASSES at Mix Up Theatre throughout Scotland :)
